Trich, or Trichinosis is a serious infection caused by the parasitic roundworm trichinella spiralis. It is caused by eating the meats of pork, beef and bear, that have not been properly cooked and contain the larvae of the parasite. The seriousness of the infection is determined by the amount of larvae ingested. Symptoms range from diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever to paralysis, coma and sometimes heart failure. Despite all forms of treatment, the illness runs its full course in six to eight weeks for full recovery. Your physician will probably prescribe the drug thiabendazole, and possibly steroids for the inflammation, but they are not without uncomfortable side effects. There are, however, natural methods of treatment that have been just as successful, with hardly any adverse reactions.
